Yes. · Alaska and Russia share a border. The U.S.-Russian maritime boundary zigzags down the Bering Strait between the Asian and American land masses. · Alaska and Russia are less than 3 miles apart at their closest point in the Bering Strait where two islands, Russia's Big Diomede Island and Alaska's Little Diomede Island, are located.

Asia is.

The Bering Strait is a sea strait between Cape Dezhnev, Russia, the easternmost point of the Asian continent and Cape Prince of Wales, Alaska, the westernmost point of the North American continent. The Bering Strait is the broad channel of ocean (about 53 miles) between Russia and Alaska. More specifically, it lies between Cape Dezhnev, which is the easternmost point (169°43' W) of continental Asia, and Cape Prince of Wales, Alaska, the most western point (168°05' W) of North America. Use the link below to see a satellite photo, maps and other information in this approximately 85 kilometer wide stretch of water that lies just below the Arctic circle. The Bering Strait links the Arctic Ocean to the Bering Sea, separating the continents of Asia and North America at their closest point. 20,000 years ago during the ice age, ice formed a bridge between North America and Asia here. Today, it consists of 47 miles of some of the harshest ocean and arctic conditions.

The distance from Russia to its closest US point is approximately 50.9 miles. This is the easternmost point of Russia across the Bering Strait to Cape Prince of Wales in Alaska.
